AND make sure that either /etc/resolv.conf doesn't exist or that it contains a single nameserver line like this:
nameserver 127.0.0.1 otherwise your local nameserver isn't queried. You see, there's really nothing else to do on a standard installation of freebsd... 1- named_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf 2- either delete /etc/resolv.conf or use nameserver 127.0.0.1 The default /etc/namedb/named.conf that comes installed does exactly what you want. -- Miguel Qua, 2006-04-26 às 08:05 +0100, Martin Hepworth escreveu: > Richard > > just set the forwarders to another nameserver in the named.conf and that's > it.. > > this will speed up SA massively. > > -- > martin > > On 4/25/06, Richard Collyer <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > > > Hello, > > > > I've recently been getting a lot of trouble with SpamAssassin performing > > a lot of rDNS lookups which is causing network issues (timeouts etc to > > DNS servers). > > > > I am trying to install BIND (or djbdns) as a simple caching nameserver. > > Just to take some of the load off the networks DNS servers (my ISPs). > > > > However I am having trouble finding a good tutorial to follow. > > > > I've looked at > > http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/network-dns.html > > but its mainly going on about being a nameserver which is not what I am > > after, wanting to keep it more simple than that. > > > > [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/local/etc] $ named -v > > BIND 9.3.1 > > > > Can anyone suggest me a good tutorial to follow, I've googled but mostly > > they are for debain/redhat and some of the commands and files are > > different. > > > > Cheers > > Richard _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
